Networking Group for female scientific staff TU/e

Women in Science - Eindhoven (WISE) Network

WISE network is a network for female scientific staff at TU/e. Supported by the University Board, the network was founded in March 2007. 

About us

WISE-Network pursues the following objectives:

  • facilitating networking among female researchers at TU/e;
  • organizing activities, e.g. for professional and personal development;
  • increasing the awareness of opportunities for female scientists;
  • advising the Executive Board of the University and other relevant committees on request and on the initiative of the network;
  • fostering contacts with other organizations promoting women in science; · being a role model for (prospective) female students.

All women PDEng/PhDs and scientific staff at TU/e are welcome to join the WISE network. Membership in the network is free, and members have no obligations. We think all members of the TU/e community can play a role in supporting gender equality, and we welcome both male and female TU/e PDEng/PhDs and scientific staff at our Annual Event (a lecture and dinner).

WISE organizes 4-6 events each year. The various activities organized by the network create opportunities for female trainee research assistants, post-docs, Assistant Professors and Associate Professors from different departments to meet. Activities that are organized throughout the year can be categorized according to the purpose of the activity. These purposes include networking, learning and (personal) development.

If you have ideas for new WISE activities, you can always mail them to:
